She says: “Please review the attached photographs of the Domino Sugar demolition site taken yesterday, on March 20 in the afternoon. The demolition activities cause significant dust formation. Winds from the East River carry the dust land inwards into the residential neighborhoods of Williamsburg. The conditions at this demolition site cause significant increases in the particulate matter in the air in Williamsburg.
Please also note as evidenced in photo 3 that the wetting activity to mitigate dust formation is woefully inadequate. As detailed in the DEP Dust Rules Chapter 13 Title 15, surfaces shall be wetted and shall be maintained adequately wet prior to commencement of demolition activities (http://www.nyc.gov/html/dep/pdf/dust_rules.pdf).
These rules are being violated, as the structures that are being demolished are bone dry. The rubble is currently stored in open dumpsters on the site, so that winds cause dust to blow into residential Williamsburg even after demolition activities subsided for the day.
Please have inspectors witness conditions at the site and enforce the Construction Dust Rules.”
